Variety confusion: please help disentangle
I'm looking with increasingly suspicious eyes at my double white Albas. I finally decided that my so-called 'Blanche de Belgique' was good old 'Alba Maxima'; now doubt has descended like a cloud on 'Princesse de Lamballe'. Can anybody tell me how it differs from 'Alba Maxima'? I haven't looked carefully at PdL when she was in bloom, but obvious differences haven't leaped out at me. I appreciate all assistance: 'Alba Maxima' is such a tough old gal that it would be easy for her to end up impersonating all kinds of other white Albas.
Another suspicious case is my 'L'Ouche', which to me looks all the world like 'Louise Odier', including the oval orange-red hips with persistent black sepals. Does anyone have 'L'Ouche'? know what it looks like? LO is another tough and attractive impersonator that I've received more than once as a different rose. I like it, but enough is enough.
